They're in the instant scratch lottery business, which is an oligopoly with only a few players in the world. A moat protexts PBL. PBL is well-run, and the lottery business is recession-proof. The recent pullback is a buying opportunity. He's buying.

The second largest supplier of instant win lottery tickets. There are only 3 companies licensed to produce lottery tickets. They plan to increase the float and make more acquisitions. They are executing very well. (Analysts’ price target is $25.50)

He's owned this for five years. It's a good performer and a leader in printing and distributing instant-scratch lottery tickets around in Canad and America. Protected by high barriers to entry into this business. It's not cheap or expensive. Lately, they've made some acquisitions, and the owners hold a lot of stock. A stable, long-term demand profile. A defensive stock.

Get in again for 5 months up to 3 years? One of their favourite investments. Not as cheap as it was. It's a good business, management is executing, and it's in a strong market position. Third largest player globally. Holds contracts globally for lottery tickets, a steady growing market, even in a recession. Poised to continue to grow. Can hold it for the next 3-5 years.

The stock has gone up from $6 when he recommended it to about $22, but that has been through organic growth and acquisition. The revenues have kept up with the stock price, so today it is trading at almost the same multiple as it did a while ago. He anticipates additional acquisitions and thinks it is a well-run business.

Recently initiated a position in this. They are in the very exciting world of scratch tickets, lottery type tickets. They have a traditional business line and are taking the free cash flow out of the excess cash flow and are making acquisitions in their space. This meets his criteria.
